Layers of Help

Hello.  Welcome.  Thank you all for your comments on my last post.  It seems I am not the only one who has tried different ways of melting embossing powder.  Must admit the toaster option seem a bit more tricky than the iron.  Maybe I need to investigate the crafty potential of other household appliances.......



I wanted a masculine look for this card using sketch #3 from the die-namites challenge.  I was heading for a simple round aperture when my rattlings through the die box turned up Simon Says Stamp Luminary Circles die.  I thought it would be a bit more exciting.  I cut a white panel and mounted on a piece of MME patterned paper.  



I cut Die-namites Cattails die once from the MME paper and twice from black card.  I layered them and added a sentiment from Unity Stamp Co 11/13 KOM on a banner.
